If you are a holder of a residence permit for the purpose of university studies in one of the member states (exept for the United Kingdom, Ireland and Denmark) you are allowed to carry out a mobility (short-term stay) in Slovakia for a max of 360 days WITHOUT the need to apply for a temporary residence in Slovakia, if:
The receiving higher education institution in Slovakia is obliged to notify the Ministry of Interior (Bureau of Border and Foreign Police of the Presidium of the Police Force) of the intention to host student/s who are residents of another member state during their mobility in advance. If the Ministry of Interior does not raise any objection, the mobility of the third-country student/s with residence permit in another member state may take place at any moment within the period of validity of the authorisation.
The receiving higher education institution’s notification shall be sent in advance. Based on the notification the Ministry of Interior may object to the mobility of the researcher/s to its territory within 30 days from having received the complete notification.
The higher education institution is obliged to report the Foreign Police in writing any change influencing the mobility in Slovakia, within three working days of learning about them.
If a student plans to carry out a part of his/her study in Slovakia in accordance with the above mentioned points, and if he/she has been granted a temporary residence in another EU Member State for a purpose other than study or research and development, it is not possible to apply the simplified procedure of the Intra-European mobility. In this case the student has to apply for a temporary residence for the purpose of special activity at the Slovak embassy/Consulate in a EU Member State where he/she has been granted the current temporary residence.
